Armadillo Improvised Armoured Vehicle

The Armadillo was an armoured fighting vehicle produced in Britain during the invasion crisis of 1940-1941. Based on a number of standard lorry chassis, it comprised a wooden fighting compartment protected by a layer of gravel filling the walls of the ‘fort’ and a driver’s cab protected by mild steel plates.

I had already constructed the model and given it a base coat of British Armour Green.

The wheels were painted with Vallejo 70.862 Black Grey.

I am still thinking I might need to add a disruptive pattern to the model.
